Who would make a better Joker in your opinion: Joaquin Phoenix or Jared Leto?
Joaquin Phoenix is set to star in a new Joker origin story film for Warner Bros. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is being described as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society [that] is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” The script is being co-written by Todd Phillips and Scott Silver and is meant to be darker and more experimental in tone than previous takes on the character. While no release date has been set, shooting is scheduled to begin in September in New York. Warner Bros. also has a possible second Joker movie in the works starring Jared Leto, who played the character in 2016’s Suicide Squad.
